Nikola - Intelligent electric vehicle integration

Project Details


Nikola is a Danish research and demonstration project with a focus on the synergies between the electric vehicle (EV) and the power system.
With sufficient control and communication it is possible to influence the timing, rate and direction of the power and energy exchanged between the EV battery and the grid.
This ability can be used in a set of "services" that bring value to the power system, the EV owner and society in general.
Nikola seeks to thoroughly investigate such services, to explore the technologies that can enable them and finally to demonstrate them through both simulations and in-field testing.
